Big Truck Deluxe Cab

An exception occurs on the 1 1/2 ton and 2 ton trucks. Though the cabs are the same as the smaller trucks, these deluxe cabs consisted of only the two corner windows. The Salesman’s Data Book shows no reference to a chrome grille or window stainless.

As money was tight and big trucks were all for work duties, it is assumed GM decided that the trim option would not be a good marketing item on the large vehicles. The corner windows were definitely a sellable extra. Visibility from these two additional windows helped much in backing.

The lower photo is from an untouched 1947 Chevy 1 1/2 ton. The corner window cabs have no trim!
